California is a great place to live, work and play. A temperate year round climate lets residents enjoy the outdoors and casual California lifestyle. The San Francisco Bay Area provides a key gateway to the economies of California and the world. But doing business in just any Bay Area location is no longer sufficient. Today's unpredictable economy demands that organizations locate in a community offering easy access to the entire region, a stable, safe business environment and room for growth along with a high quality of life. Here, business-friendly government policies, outstanding Class A office space values, numerous industrial parks and excellent transportation combine with favorable home prices, an educated workforce, a dynamic retail environment and an enviable quality of life to make Concord a premier business location.
